The kids we support have a tougher climb out of their persistent poverty.

So we aim to highlight this difficulty by climbing the tallest peak in Africa.

What if you or your children never had a chance to go to school. Where would you be today? What would your life be like? It's never fun to depend on others and to have your options limited by extreme poverty. It's very hard on your self confidence and esteem. We're climbing Kilimanjaro to raise awareness of the hope education brings into their otherwise dreary world. Every dollar raised will go into a capital campaign whose purpose is to purchase land and build a permanent location for the Matthew2540 school in Guatemala. Kilimanjaro is 19,459 feet high. Our goal is to raise that much to get this campaign started. We estimate the entire project to need $250,000 and future mission teams to help lay concrete, pour floors and paint walls once the land purchase is complete. Our climbing party is composed of Lynn, David and John Isenhower along with Lynn's brother Mark Bollinger. We'd appreciate your support of our climb and its goal.
